    I wouldn't mind a cheeky bid on it myself as a bit of a project. Then take it off the road and OM606 turbo it.

    Wonder what the reserve is though.

    Well I couldnt post up a link of my own car!
    It is very nearly at its reserve, im not gready and aware that the bodywork will need plenty of work if its going to be someones long-term keeper.
    Could very well regret selling this, I was intending to keep it, but you cant keep everything.

    I shall be watching this auction with interest. Diesel 123 wagons seem to go for silly money even if they are wrecks.....this one looks to have a nice long ticket also and be nice and original.

    I liked this bit ! :)

    "The cars complex electrical system is working ok, it has a knob which you turn and both the front and back of the car have lights which illuminate to assist with night time driving. Thats about the extent of the electrical system, and much better for it."

    yea, i mean i've made no bones about it in the auction.. the paint is flat and there is plenty of surface rust in places and this MOT it just had was the first one (looking back throught he last half dozen or so) that it needed welding, so its probblay getting to the point now where it will need bits welding each year unless someone did a total restoration on it, which probably wouldnt be economical viable.
    That said.. I was prepared to drive it to southern Germany next summer, and you dont need to do any work to it atall if like me you dont mind the way it looks now. Plus, someone needs to take it over that 400k mark!

    Reserve still not met and it is about at what I am willing to pay for it TBH.

    Wonder what the reserve is set at, I should imagine a little over 1k. Have a feeling it will shoot up at the last minute. 123 wagons, especially in diesel form are rare as hens teeth.

    Reserve is only £1k, in a way I hope it doesnt make too much over that as like you I think thats what its worth and whats fair, but we'll see.

    Well, looks like someone local to me in Somerset, in Merriott, no idea if its a forum member or not. I think that was a fair price in the end. Lets see if I get contact!
